CRa completes national deployment of DVB-T2 in Czech Republic

22 May 2018

Broadband TV News writes that infrastructure provider Ceske Radiokomunikace (CRa) has completed the rollout of its nationwide DVB-T2 transmitter network in the Czech Republic, completing the programme in around six months. Its last phase of rollout took in areas in the Zlin region in the south east of the country, boosting the total number of multiplex transmitters on-air to 26 and allowing 99.6% of viewers to receive high-definition (HD) TV broadcasts from Czech public broadcaster Ceska Televize (CT).

Previously, in October 2017, CRa launched services in Eastern Bohemia and the Moravian-Silesian region at which date DVB-T2 transmissions were available to 83.1% of Czech households – a figure that had increased to around 95% by the year end. The transition to the DVB-T2 standard will be completed in 2020.

CRa is one of the largest communications network operators in the Czech Republic, owning and operating its own backbone optical network, wireless infrastructure for data and other transmission services, and an extensive system of TV and radio broadcast transmitters.
